Get Involved

When you volunteer, you become part of the Mission Lexington family as you create miracles of help and hope.

Our volunteers come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Last year, they donated nearly 20,000 hours of service, giving hands-on care in our social services area, donation center, thrift store, providing administrative support, and more.

Mission Lexington volunteers report a deep sense of satisfaction in contributing to the well-being of individuals and families while working alongside others who have the same desires.

We provide training for all volunteer positions, so no prior experience is required. Whether working in social services, the donation center, or helping to make an event successful, you can be a part of the life-saving work we do.

Minimum age requirements: You must be at least 16 years of age to Volunteer at Mission Lexington. Volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.
